Big Picture

In reference to the LGBT+ rainbow flag: ‘How is this flag different to other flags?’ (The Big Picture links the lesson content to events outside of school. The lesson will support students in looking at the flag in more detail.)

10 mins 12-16 Pair/Share – LGBT+

All: The Rainbow Flag is a symbol of LGBT+ people. LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans. Do you know what these words mean? (Opportunity to address misconceptions.)

15 mins 17-22 New Material All: LGBT+ people use lots of different flags. We are going to look at some of them. ASK: Sometimes we call LGBT+ flags “pride” flags, why do you think this is? (You can use slide 18, printed or otherwise, or share with students the bisexual, trans, LGBT+ and progress flags.) For each flag, the students should count the number of different colours and write their answers as a number and as a word.
